KS3 Spanish Cover Lesson Design your own City

KS3 Spanish Cover Lesson Design your own City

Lesson Covers: How to describe your city (imaginary!) - what's in it and what it has e.g. my city has a king, watchtowers, walls and a dragon. This works best as a cover lesson. It is easy for non-specialists to follow but supports and challenges KS3 students of Spanish well. Could also be adapted for use in lessons by specialists in order to revise 'what's in one's city / town'. It is helpful, but not necessary, if the students have some knowledge of connectives, adjectives and SER / TENER in Spanish. Important key words are provided in each activity of lesson. Dictionaries needed. Lesson involves: Differentiated objectives and starter (quick translation) activity. Activity 1: Teams work to look up words (in Spanish) used to describe what's in a city e.g. murallas, atalayas etc. Next slide gives answers to students so they can write down whatever they were unable to find. Activity 2: Differentiated translation task using key vocabulary they have just looked up in teams. Key words provided as well as higher challenge. Next slide contains answers for peer / self-assessment. Main and final activity: students design and label their own city using key words / sentences they have been working on throughout lesson. Again, this is differentiated by task with key works provided on ppt. Bubble snake review to finish.

El patrimonio cultural: notas de revisión

El patrimonio cultural: notas de revisión

This is the last set of revision notes for the new A Level. It is meant to be a resumé as you can imagine, since the "patrimonio" is such a vast topic. However, I hope that it give grounds for the students to prepare speaking cards, to revise vocabulary and provide some ideas for the individual research project. I will also be publishing revision notes for the second year of the A Level, so please visit my shop again. And if you have missed it, I have an invaluable collection of speaking cards mirrowing the exam. These are also available in TES as cheap as £2 per unit or purchased for the year at £10. If you enjoy my resources, please encourage your colleagues to support me. Many thanks for all your comments. Happy teaching and learning. Blanca.

Speaking cards and questions El patrimonio cultural

Speaking cards and questions El patrimonio cultural

Here is the final installment (hoorrayyyy!!!) of stimulus cards , general questions and one little exercise practicing making questions for the new A level. You will see the cards are varied in content, always trying to think a bit out of the box! The other installments are also available in TES. The first set on "Los valores tradicionales y modernos" contains sample questions (I have ploughed through every possible card on this planet so I hope I got them all!). You would have noticed these questions follow a pattern, so I have tried to reproduce it on my cards. There are revision notes/ general notes accompanying this card (useful for the students to prepare the cards independently). These are also available in TES. I hope you find them useful and your £2 save you a lot of work. Any comments, as usual, are welcome. happy teaching and learning! Blanca
